Given an arbitrary subdirectory, how does SVN know where the metadata is
located? Does it just start walking up the directory tree looking for it?
How about third-party tools to work against an SVN working dir? Do they
repeat the scan?

I'm in favor of the per-dir metadata. None of this central stuff because you
don't have a way to point to the dumb thing. (and if anybody suggests and
environment variable, I will personally beat the crap out of you :-)
